Navigating SB 553 Training Requirements for Offsite Employees

Watch this 2-minute video

In our webinar, "SB 553 Compliance: California's Workplace Violence Prevention Plan Simplified," we tackle the specific challenges faced by offsite employees under the new SB 553 regulation. This legislation requires all California employers to ensure a safe working environment, including for those working offsite in healthcare and educational settings.  

SB 553 Compliance for Offsite Employees: Understanding Workplace Violence Prevention 

Training Requirements for Offsite Employees 

 Judy Liang and Jessica Turner discuss how to effectively cover the necessary training for employees working at locations like skilled nursing homes and large expo events. The focus is on ensuring that these employees are as well prepared as their onsite counterparts to handle potential violent situations. 

 Application of SB 553 in Healthcare and Education 

 Jessica Turner explains that while SB 553 mandates workplace violence prevention training, the specifics may vary based on the actual work location. Employees in healthcare settings, such as nursing homes, are required to have comprehensive training to deal with potential violent encounters effectively. 

Importance of Comprehensive Training Programs 

The webinar emphasizes the importance of equipping all employees with the knowledge and skills to manage and mitigate incidents of violence, regardless of their regular work setting. This approach not only complies with legal requirements but also enhances overall employee safety and preparedness.
